Inside refrigerator light

I just had a new refrigerator installed. Everything functions fine except that the inside light does not illuminate when the door is opened. The only reference I see in the manual is to replacing the light bulb after it burns out. In this case, it's brand new. There must be a simple explanation or fix, but I can't come up with it.

Did you try replacing the bulb? The bulb could have been bad from the beginning, and if the door was never opened before being installed in your home, that would be the simplest answer.

Below are instructions to reset water filter light. Thanks, Sea Breeze
If helpful please rate.

Reset Filter (select models)

When a water filter has been installed in the

refrigerator, the yellow Order light will illuminate when

90 percent of the volume of water for which the filter is

rated has passed through the filter OR 11 months have

elapsed since the filter has been installed.

The red Replace light will illuminate when the rated

volume of water has passed through the filter OR 12

months have elapsed since the filter was installed. A

new filter should be installed immediately when the

Replace light is illuminated.

After replacing the filter, press and hold the Reset

Filter pad for three seconds. The Order and Replace

lights will go off.

Vacation Mode

The Vacation Mode feature causes the freezer

to defrost less frequently, conserving energy. The

Vacation Mode indicator light will illuminate when the

feature is activated. To deactivate, press the Vacation

Mode pad again OR open either door. The indicator

light will go off.

Light bulbs have been replaced but don't light


Hello Binfull,

Since you replaced both bulbs with new ones and they still won't illuminate, there is a high probability that the open door switch is not working or if you have a newer style refridgerator then in some models if the electronic brain for that model sensed the door has been open for too long, it will shut off the lamps.. Try this.. unplug the firge for a minute or two then plug it back in. Check to see if that 'power up clear' cycle got the lights to illuminate. Also, if your model has a freezer that has lights in it check to see if they go on. Hope that helps you.. Good luck...

You can get the manual here. on page 16 it tells you how to take off savagemode.

Sabbatical mode settings:

Good Luck
